The New Power of Children and Young People
In a rapidly changing world, children have more of a voice than ever before. In The New Power of Children and Young People, David Cohen explores how this has happened, what the consequences might be and how we can best engage with our young people.
David Cohen considers the social, political and psychological issues involved in children and young people’s influence, and how it impacts the balance of power between children and parents and other adults in their lives. It examines crucial topics including the role of high-profile young people such as Malala Yousafzai and Greta Thunberg; their knowledge of and anxieties around global issues such as climate change; children’s relationships with technology and social media; their changing relationships with parents and guardians; how children develop a sense of justice; sex and relationships; how children are depicted in TV and film; young people’s experience of education; and shines a light on their growing political confidence and engagement.
Young people should be interested as well as parents, teachers, social workers, politicians and other key professionals involved in children and young people’s lives. This thought-provoking book offers insight to help us understand young people’s lives.
